More than my adult life, I thought the electoral college was stupid from
the very first day I learned of its existence in my fifth grade civics
class, I kept asking my teacher to explain what the point of it was but I
didn't get a satisfactory answer, and I still haven't.

I asked this of Spike now let me ask you, would you still be a big fan of
the electoral college if California was as conservative as Wyoming and
Wyoming as liberal as California? Would you still be saying the electoral
college leads to better government if a liberal voter had 66.7 times as
much influence over who the next commander in chief would be as a
conservative voter?
